‘Disruption’ expected as road to close for eight weeks as part of A16 roundabout works at Pinchbeck

An eight-week road closure will begin next month as work to widen a roundabout continues.

The Greencell Roundabout is currently undergoing a ten-month makeover as part of a £20 million Levelling Up project.

The B1180 leg of roundabout, which connects the A16 with Pinchbeck’s industrial area will shut from July 15, Lincolnshire County Council have announced.

Karen Cassar, assistant director for highways, said: “With our Pinchbeck roundabout improvements fully underway, we’re nearing the start of our first road closure part of the scheme which will be on the B1180 leg of the roundabout.

“The eight-week closure will allow the project team safe working space to complete utility works at this area of site, as well as building additional entry and exit lanes onto the new roundabout.

“We’ll also be taking the opportunity to lay new road surfacing and install new signage and street lighting columns here.

“This will no doubt cause some disruption, but the closure is essential for ensuring the safety of both our workforce and road users.

“Some additional closures will be needed later in the scheme, but dates haven’t been confirmed. Once we have details, we will share more information closer to the time.”

The road will be closed 24/7 and a diversion route will be carried out via Wardentree Lane, the B1180, B1356, A152, A16 and vice versa.

The project is being funded by a portion of the £20m in Levelling Up funding awarded to the county council in October 2021.

The remaining funding is being used across four other projects, including improvements to Spalding’s A16/B1180 Springfield Roundabout, the A16 Marsh Lane Roundabout, and footway/cycleway improvements in Boston and Spalding.
